The Doors Quarterly Magazine # 32, issued on June 15, 1995 – what can I say?
What a fine issue it was!

It was almost 20 years ago today, when the readers of DQ Magazine found out about
Paul Rothchild’s sudden death, right after he had finished work on digitally remastering
the An American Prayer CD. I paid my tribute to him by reprinting his (basic) interview
he did for L.A.’s BAM magazine.

And there’s the transcript of Jim’s Jomo & The Smoothies session (as reviewed in my usual
Notes From The Underground, The Lost Paris Tapes, check page 20/21 of DQ 32).
It took a lot of work to review that many underground releases and of course all
those official publications, tell ya!

Another transcript should be read while listening to a recording of The Doors'
infamous Miami concert (March 1, 1969) – the article called Apocalypse Now, Then (p. 34-45),
which is a chapter in my Doors book by Heel Publishers, here translated into English
for the first time ever.

Most fascinating of all are two of Jim Morrison’s testimonies transcribed by a court reporter,
dated September 16 and September 17, 1970. They make a damn interesting reading,
check yourself!

For our German readers Gabriele Pagel examined two books containing different translations
of Morrison’s poetry into German language (p.69-73). It is a very strange trip through
a whole lotta awful mistakes made by the people who translated Jim’s poems,
and I still would like to hear comments about Gabriele’s article from our German readers.
Somehow I wonder why those books are still around and why readers still take those
translations for granted.

A photo of The Doors’ Dutch release of The Soft Parade is on the title page, and one of
the German special release of Waiting For The Sun is on page75 --- both vinyl discs are
rare collector’s items with increasing value.

And – check page 29 – Ray Manzarek confirmed to me that the song Take It As It Comes
was written by Robby Krieger, and he let me print the according document, which he
announced being authentic.

Have fun (re-)reading The Doors Quarterly #32.

P.S.: The magazine did not come along with a free poster, but with two
